In no particular order;
1:Peering polcies resulting in really bizarre business-dictated routes.
2:Over-booking on broadband links (cable-modems)
3:Over extended growth by DSL operators (w/ resultant business failures, ie
4:RBOCs ... ALL of them.
5:Fixing what ain't broke.
6:Forgetting why you did something and then doing it "right" later.
7:ICANN for broken DNS (which BIZ you iz).
8:NewNet, for REALLY proving 7:.
9:The A**holes that write scripts for script-kiddies.
10: ...I'll stop while I'm behind....
Note that very little of the above had anything to do with technology and
everything to do with people.
